About the property

The loft has a concierge service available 24/24 and a reserved covered parking

Modern and sophisticated loft, fine finishes and park view. The loft has a concierge service available 24/24 and a reserved covered parking space for guests. The loft is located just 15 minutes by tramway from the city centre.

The loft is located in the Business Center "Piero della Francesca". It is a structure containing mostly offices and some lofts. The Business Center is equipped with surveillance and concierge service operating H24. The covered parking space is equipped with surveillance too.

The loft is located in the building in front of Dora Park, a unique park in Italy as it is characterized by a striking post-industrial architecture. The loft has a full wall of windows overlooking the park, in summer the view is dominated by the green color of the trees, at the horizon you see the hill of Turin and the Basilica of Superga.

The loft has an area of 75 square meters and is beautifully decorated with a particular taste for modern and minimalist design. The kitchen is equipped with modern amenities (induction hob, multifunction oven, dishwasher) and is characterized by a beautiful island covered with black quartzite. The dining area is equipped with a big design table, useful for users needing a large workspace. In the living area there is a large sofa for 4 people and an ottoman.

There is a 32 "LCD TV and an high-end hi-fi system connectable to external sources (I-Phone, I-Pod, etc.). A fitted wall divides the living and sleeping areas. The sleeping area is equipped with a double bed and a large walk-in closet. The loft has a bathroom with dressing: in the bathroom there are shower, bidet and toilet, sink and mirror in the dressing.

Guests will have the opportunity to use everything inside the loft. It comes with everything you need for everyday life, such as pots, dishes, small appliances and household linen. The loft has a private parking space within the "Piero della Francesca" Business Center, accessible by elevator directly from the hallway in front of the loft. The loft is equipped with unlimited high speed wi-fi ADSL internet connection.

I will welcome guests personally. I will be also available for any problems should arise during your stay. Inside the loft you will find instructions for use of household appliances, heating and air conditioning.

To protect both the Host that the guests, and to comply with legal obligations, guests will be asked to sign a regular "rental contract of property used for tourism" (in accordance with art. 1, paragraph 2 letter. C ), the Law of 9 December 1998 n. 431). You can contact me to receive a copy of the contract.

The loft can be reached in the following ways:

PLANE: The railway to Torino Caselle airport has the terminus at Dora GTT station, on the other side of the Dora Park. The loft is easily accessible walking through the park.

TRAIN (Porta Nuova and Porta Susa): from Porta Nuova and Porta Susa take tram number 9 in the direction Stampalia, which will take you directly in front of the loft (stop Piero della Francesca).

CAR: From the ring road north of Turin exit at Corso Regina Margherita, continue straight on Corso Regina Margherita, until you cross Corso Svizzera. Turn left onto Corso Svizzera and proceed until you reach the "Piero della Francesca" Business Center.

The loft floor is in parquet, so it requires a particular care not to damage the wood. Particularly the parquet fears water so any water falling on the floor must be dried immediately.

No smoking is allowed inside the loft.

Pets are not allowed.

The loft is located in an area in the middle of urban renewal, very interesting are the remains, which have become monuments, of industrial architecture of the early '900. A new residential area was born in the place of the big factories once in activities in the area. A large park was also inaugurated, the Dora Park, which is right in front of the loft. The Park is unique in Italy as hosts inside several examples of post-industrial architecture that create a very particular aesthetic effect. Dora Park hosts many events such as the Kappa Future Festival, and is often used as a set for music videos and photo shoots.

The area is just outside the city center, which can be quickly reached by public transportation. The central zone closer to the loft is the Roman Quarter.

Right in front the loft there are a taxi rank and a bus stop of lines 3 and 9. Both lines can reach the city center in a few minutes. Line 3 allows to reach Porta Palazzo and the Roman Quarter in 15 minutes, while the line 9 reaches Porta Susa railway station in 15 minutes and Porta Nuova in 20 minutes. From Porta Nuova railway station you can easily walk to the area of San Salvario or Piazza San Carlo (the salon of Turin).

From Dora railway station, which is a 10 minute walk from the loft, on the opposite side of the Dora park, you can reach the "Reggia di Venaria" and Turin Caselle Airport.

Spacious, comfortable, well appointed, airy and light.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to stay in this apartment. It has a well appointed kitchen, excellent bathroom and good clothes washing facilities. These are absolutely essential requirements from our point of view for the traveller who is on the road for a couple of months.

The design of the apartment is very modern and well adorned with prints, paintings and other decorations. The bedroom is spacious and the bed is very comfortable.

Property was clean and well maintained.

Our host met us as promised at the tram station, took us to the apartment and gave us a good rundown on it's workings.

The apartment is serviced by two tram lines and this gives terrific access to the city.

We would recommend this property to others.

nice view and modern

  • 4 of 5

fabio is a very helpful host ready to assist his guests at any moment .the apartment is very complete with appliances ,coffee ,tea etc but i must say we did miss a real oven (electric ) .heating or toasting bread in the micro is a very frustrating experience . he did offer a toaster which we unfortunately declined and regret it to this day .

the building seems somewhat abandoned but it is compensated by the apartment itself .

thank you fabio for a nice stay in turin

The apartment is gorgeous!! And, it is very handy to the tram line. Fabio was very helpful, getting back to us quickly whenever we would call. Terrific shower. Very n Fabio, thank you for kitchen. Comfortable bed. The only problem we had was that I could never figure out the oven well enough to make toast.

Owner's Response: Thank you, it was a pleasure for me to host you in my apartment. Hope you will come back in the future. Thank you for your note about the oven, I just purchased an easy-to-use 2-Slice Toaster for future guest's breakfast.

The apartment is clean, spacious, bright and well equipped with amenities

  • 4 of 5

We were given a warm welcome with practical tips on getting to the city, the sights and the locations for the food. Tip; A truly wonderful historic city centre with piitoreske horeca in an inviting coffee-and ijskultuur. But try to bypass public holidays, then you also bypass long queues.

Ciao! Leontine/Martin
